It is an honour and a privilege to represent the residents of Baie-D’Urfé, Beaconsfield, Pointe-Claire, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, and Senneville in the National Assembly. Thank you for your trust and for your confidence in me. I grew up right here in the West Island. Your priorities are my priorities! I too care deeply about the institutions and organizations that make our community a better place to live, work and go to school. I am committed to defending your rights and preserving access to local resources. West Islanders rally together, comfort the suffering and fix what is broken. I assure you that I will continue to work with local partners in order to be part of that solution.
I was born and raised in the riding of Jacques-Cartier. Proud graduate of Beacon Hill Elementary School, Beaconsfield High School and John Abbott College, I spent each summer at the Beacon Hill community pool, playing water polo, participating in swimming competitions, and holding a summer job as an instructor. More recently, I volunteered with the Jacques Cartier Liberal Association, served on the West Island Palliative Care Residence Youth Ambassador Committee, and helped lead and manage a ball hockey league.
I studied at McGill University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in history and political science, and subsequently a master’s degree in public administration from Queen’s University. After my studies, I started my career in the public sector, which allowed me to work for various ministers as a political advisor.
In 2017, after working for the Minister for Canadian Relations, Jean-Marc Fournier, I accepted the position of official liaison for the English-speaking community in Premier Couillard’s office. When Kathleen Weil was appointed Minister responsible for Relations with the English-speaking Community, I joined her office to continue the work that was already begun with this community.
I am involved in politics because I want to be of service to the Jacques-Cartier community. This riding is where I feel at home; it has given a lot to me, my family and friends. Being able to serve the citizens of the riding would be an honour for me, and I will work hard to defend their interests in the National Assembly.
